Walk out with custom El Paso Tooth Crowns in 90 minutes
A damaged, fractured, or misshapen tooth can be corrected in one day with same-day El Paso dental crowns made of realistic-looking porcelain at Vista Hills Family Dental. When performed by their elite team of board-certified El Paso dentists, you can attain a functional and appealing result in as little as one appointment.
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that dentists place over a broken, damaged, or irregularly shaped tooth.
They are also routinely used to protect a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy and may take the place of a filling. Crowns can be made from a range of materials, including metal alloys, ceramic, and resin.
However, the dentists at Vista Hills have observed that porcelain crowns provide a superior result with unmatched durability. With a custom-fitted porcelain crown made in the lab the same day, you can renew your smile in just one visit. No one will be able to tell the difference between the porcelain crown and your natural teeth.
Porcelain crowns for the most natural-looking results
Unlike metal crowns, the latest porcelain crowns look extremely natural. Porcelain is a highly durable material that mimics the color and sheen of natural teeth. Your Vista Hills dentist will color match the crown to your existing teeth to ensure a seamless result.
Tooth crowns shield damaged teeth from further wear and decay. They can even improve small or misshapen teeth. The procedure is painless and non-invasive. You will be awake during your crown placement, so there is no general anesthesia to worry about. Best of all, Vista Hills Family Dental uses advanced CEREC technology, making it possible to get your El Paso dental crowns the same day.
Vista Hills offers Same-day Tooth Crowns in El Paso
Before having the CEREC machine, patients would require a temporary crown and a second dental appointment. Thanks to modern technological advancements that is no longer the case. Vista Hills Family Dental is pleased to offer same-day crowns in El Paso. Using the CEREC machine and a 3D scanner, they can create a custom porcelain crown in approximately 30 minutes or less.
When your crown is ready, they will prepare the tooth by filing and then filling any weak or damaged areas if necessary. Next, they will affix the crown in place with a cement bonding material. If a significant amount of the natural tooth is damaged, they may introduce a post to keep the crown fixed firmly in place. In most cases, same-day crowns take 90 minutes or less from start to finish. You will walk out with a beautiful, custom-fitted porcelain crown in just one appointment.
After your crown procedure, you can resume your normal routine right away. Some patients experience mild sensitivity or aching after receiving crowns, but this should resolve quickly. You can brush and floss your teeth the same day.
Porcelain crowns can last anywhere from five to 15 years. To protect your newly crowned tooth, brush twice daily and floss once per day, just as you would care for your natural teeth. Avoid extremely hard or crunchy foods, nail-biting, teeth grinding, and tobacco use to help keep your crown looking as great as it did the day you received it.

A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over a damaged or irregular tooth. Dental implants surgically replace one or more missing teeth.
Patients who have a tooth fracture that extends beyond the gum line may need to undergo a crown lengthening procedure, which involves removing some of the bone so that the crown has enough healthy structure to grasp onto.
Old crowns that have become discolored or stained usually require replacement as they cannot be whitened like natural teeth. If you are considering whitening your teeth, your Vista Hills dentist will likely suggest a professional teeth whitening treatment before your crown placement.
Good oral hygiene practices, such as daily brushing and flossing, can extend the lifespan of your crowns. While durable, porcelain crowns can crack just like natural teeth if they are mistreated. When brushing and flossing, pay extra attention to the gum line surrounding the crown to avoid bacteria buildup.
The average cost of dental crowns in the United States is $3,950. As it is a highly customized procedure, the actual price you pay may vary considerably from the national average. Your Visa Hills dentist will review the expected costs with you during your consultation.
The dental crown procedure is painless and non-invasive. Vista Hills’ dentists take great care to ensure you feel at ease during your treatment, regardless of the type of dental work you or your family member needs.
Dental crowns last a long time, but they are not permanent devices. It is not unheard of for crowns to last up to 15 years before needing a crown replacement procedure.
